    Adverts for loan horses needing work

    As someone who currently is missing having a horse (and currently unable to afford my own) and looking at shares - I wouldn't be adverse to considering one of these horses and making a relatively small contribution for this. I know I'm not a good enough rider to charge for my services - but do...

    Opinions on Waterford bits? How severe are they?

    When I first got my previous horse - he was ridden in a waterford for hacking - which I continued at first. The waterford was highly effective. However as when he got excited my hands didn't always give straight away on him coming back to me - I found it was winding him up. So ended up changing...

    Your future predictions of the horse world

    Although 20 years may seem like a long time - with horses now regularly living into their twenties and potentially prolonged by availability to new vet treatments; all these depressing predictions could been seen across the ownership of one horse for the aspiring "forever" owner buying a...

    Having a horse while on a budget?

    From experience - remember owning a horse is a long term commitment and the financial costs both expected and unexpected keep coming through their life. Even relatively minor conditions can cost £50/month on an ongoing basis. Which then leaves little money for new emergencies.

    Museum of the Horse (Tuxford)

    Never heard of it. Would expect similiar things to TFF. Would prefer to go around on my own (or with people I'm with) - however a guided tour can be great when he guide is able to put items into context - and maybe highlight items that would be too easy to go straight past. Would probably...

    Is £5000 too low budget for a horse in the current market?

    As a potential buyer of a 'leisure' horse I probably shouldn't be trying to justify the high prices being charged. I reckon it costs me around £8K a year to keep a horse (that includes full (part) livery). If I'm looking at paying around £8K for a four/five year old that someone else has bred...

    Is £5000 too low budget for a horse in the current market?

    As someone who would like to look for something similar - I've decided I can't start looking until I've saved up £8K plus extras (originally thought £5K would up appropriate but realised that at that will be getting issues - they may not be deal breakers but are likely to mean extra costs to...

    Instructor Insurance

    Have just been reading the thread on instructor qualifications and was surprised by the emphasis on their insurance. For competent adults, on their own horses - wondered what scenario's you would expect instructor's insurance to cover - rather than it being your own responsibility,

    How much should I charge for part loan?

    I think first of all you need to determine what you're looking for from the share 1) A rider that will school and improve your horse (in this case the amount charged will probably be low or if a pro - you may have to pay them) 2) A rider that can share and enjoy your horse - and is...

    men`s show jackets

    I think that the first one may be an EU size 48 - which would equate to approx a UK 38/40 The seller has then measured actual size across the chest - so actual garment is 44" - hence skin tight. The Kingsland being a UK size - is actually designed to fit a 52" chest - with breathing space etc

    Is there (or should there be) a ceiling weight to horse riding

    Racing weight includes saddle riders boots/hat etc - which for a leisure rider will probably add 2 stone plus to bathroom scales weight.
